Joy Spring is another good mixed bolt / gear route on the west face of Spring Dome, just left of Spring Honeymoon.

Follow a fun 5.8 left facing flake as it arches left, climb up and past 3 bolts to fun cracks and a high, easy to miss 4th bolt directly below the anchor or head a little right to the Spring Honeymoon anchor.

Varied climbing with an exciting 5.9 friction section to the second bolt that will get your attention.


Light rack of nuts and cams small to 2 inches and good bolts. Bolted anchor/rap requires 2 ropes or walk off 5 minutes north side.
